Don’t miss: Great Western Bicycle Rally

Mark your calendars, the 2015 Great Western Bicycle Rally in Paso Robles has been scheduled for May 22-25.

Great Western Bicycle Rally was the first of its kind in the nation, it remains the most inclusive, most bicycle centered event of its kind.

It’s also the only face to face meeting north and south cyclists, and CABO representatives, can easily access.

The Great Western Bicycle Rally has something for everyone.  A common passion for cycling brings all types of rider together for a simply awesome 4 day festival of all things to do with bikes, set in one of the most idyllic cycling locations in California; Paso Robles, one of California’s nominated bicycle friendly cities.
